Day 2: Athens tour with Acropolis Museum

The striking contrast between breathtaking monuments of a glorious past and modern elegant structures is what you will enjoy during your tour of Athens. Visit the Acropolis, the crowning beauty and glory of Ancient Athens, with its many monuments atop its rocky base, including the awesome Parthenon, the Propylaea, the Temple of Athena Nike and the Erechtheion, with its Porch of Maidens. Drive to the Roman Temple of Olympic Zeus, the Panathenaic Stadium (site of the first modern Olympic Games in 1896), the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in front of the Parliament House at Syntagma Square (“Syntagma” means “constitution”).
See views of government buildings and elegant structures of the 19th century. Drive along Panepistimiou Avenue and view the Catholic Cathedral, the Academy, the University and the National Library. In contrast, conclude your tour with a visit to the New Acropolis museum, a marvel of architecture with a full exhibition of the glory of Ancient Athens.

Day 3: One-Day-Cruise

Take a cruise to the fabulously traditional Greek islands of Hydra, Poros and Aegina for a relaxing day on the sea. With all your transport, transfers and lunch organized, you can just enjoy your cruise with free time on each island to explore.
Poros is the smallest of the three islands you will visit during your cruise. The island is separated from Peloponnese by a narrow strait, which offers an enchanting view of Poros Town.
The amphitheatrical shape of the island provided a safe shelter from Saronic Pirates. As soon as you disembark, the small narrow stone-paved streets are expecting you to explore them on foot or by the island’s traditional “vehicle”, the cute donkeys.
Walk along the old promenade, take a swim in the crystal clear blue waters and find the most appropriate souvenir for you in the traditional fine-craft shops.
The largest of the three islands to be visited during your cruise has numerous interesting sites to visit, such as the Temple of Aphaia, the Temple of Apollo, the medieval capital of Paleochora and the Church of Saint Nektarios.

Day 4: Free morning in Athens & Cape Sounion

What is better than a walking tour in Athens, in the heart of Greek daily life? The walking tour will get better and better as you enter the famous Plaka and Monastiraki with the numerous cafés and souvenir shops. By walking through the narrow streets and near their neoclassical buildings, it will be like travelling back in time. During your walk you can also visit the city part of Kolonaki, whose streets host some of the most famous and expensive brands, such as Prada, Louis Vuitton and Ralph Lauren.
Afternoon excursion at Cape Sounion which is only 70 km away from Athens and thus the perfect destination for a sunny, lazy afternoon. The Temple of Poseidon, whose half of the Doric columns are still standing, is perched on a rocky hilltop overlooking the sea and offers an absolutely breathtaking, panoramic view of the Aegean sea.
